DR. CLARK (Caithness)

asked the Lord Advocate, If it is true, as stated by The Oban Times, that the workmen in the employ of the Easdale Slate Company are paid their wages partly in money and partly in goods; and, if the system in operation there is an infringement of the Truck Acts?

THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)

, in reply, said, that he had not yet been able to obtain any facts in regard to the matter, and he would be glad if the hon. Member would postpone his Question.
